I know you didn't mention it, but I'm very happy with my EVGA GTX 780 SC with the ACX cooler. I rarely go above 65 degrees, and the only game that goes any higher is crysis 3. The card stays at 65 with less than 50% fan speed. I also have poor air circulation in my case, so you will most likely get lower temps than me.

Not to mention the $20 rebate, bringing the total cost down to $505 (includes shipping)

Thx for the heads-up on this (+rep).
Actually had one on order, looked into it (seems to be a thing on EVGA as you said).

Switched my order to a DCII, had the same cooler on a 280X and cant complain at all about it.
Should have it by Wednesday biggrin.gif

Except now you'll be limited to 1.21V on the DCII, which is no fun.

Yea, still appears to get some decent OCs from all the reviews I saw so im cool with that. TBH I havent bothered messing w voltages too much on my vid cards for a long time.

Consequently I already had an evga backplate ordered so that will be up for sale if anyone wants it lol.

It really just depends on how good the chip is.  Not having extra voltage isn't the end of the world by no means.  On my 780 Lightning, just because I can go up to 1.4V+ doesn't mean I do.  Typically I only run it at stock voltage, or maybe 1.2V.  I'll push it up to 1.35V if I'm doing 3DMark or Valley suicide runs, but that isn't an everyday thing.

 

Hopefully you get a good one, enjoy the new 780!

I am jelly, lol.. I'm thinking about watercooling too, but I have no experience and I haven't the extra money at the moment anyway.

New toy tomorrow biggrin.gif.

Gigabyte Windforce3x Rev 2.0 aka B1 chip and probably Hynix VRAM.

After going through 8 different 780's for reviewing and settling on a 290X for a while i'm so happy this gigabyte popped by on the local secondhands.

The Ghz Edition was by far the best card I reviewed plus the WF3 has a 8+2 phase VRM, directly cooled by the main heatsink, and they're controllable with the NCP4208 the card has. MSI AB has no problem doing 1.30v on them and i'm not afraid to run the card at that voltage either in terms of VRM's.

So, i'm hoping for something like, 1250/7000 on stock BIOS and 1350+/7000+ orso on skyn3t 1.30v power.
Thundahcat.
